Bring your pet for Pups and Popcorn Movie Night

By Jamila Parker, Parks & Recreation Activities Assistant

We typically show our loyal pets love and appreciation with new toys or delicious treats. Since we love to spend time with our furry friends, why not bring them to a movie?

Movies in the Park at Wolf Pen Creek has you covered!

Join us on Friday, March 20, for Movies in the Park Pups and Popcorn Night at the Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater at 1015 Colgate Drive. We’ll show “The Secret Life of Pets 2” on our 32-foot wide inflatable, high-definition screen. Admission is free, gates open at 7 p.m., and the movie begins at sundown.

Bring refreshments, lawn chairs, and blankets, but remember that your coolers must be 48 quarts or smaller — and don’t bring alcohol or glass containers. Come early and enjoy our giant lawn games! You can buy popcorn from a vendor, but if you enter through Holleman Drive, you’ll receive free popcorn and a treat for your pet while supplies last. Please be prepared to clean up after your pet.

“Humans … they are not the cowering wretches we were promised. They stand. They are unruly and therefore cannot be ruled. To challenge them is to court death.” – The Other, “The Avengers”

Join us Friday night at the American Pavilion in Veterans Park & Athletic Complex for a free showing of “The Avengers” on our big screen. Bring your friends, family, blankets and chairs for an evening of family-friendly fun. We’ll also be honoring our national and local heroes who fight for our country overseas and protect and serve us at home.
